    WE Big Bird M&P slide problem

    (edited as I had forgotten about the Toucan)
  2. A fully functional left leg would be nice, but even Satan won't deliver that let alone Santa!

    Pistol identification?

    If it is a VB they're about 70 notes (plus shipping) new, but it could just as easily be a modified A.N.Other... If it feels like a good unit in your hands, you feel it was worth the cash, it does what it's supposed to, and goes the distance, that's what matters

    Pistol identification?

    Well that also depends how much you paid, if you paid KJW/KWC money for a second hand VB, I'd be a tad annoyed (even if 95% the same production line), but caveat emptor.

    At least until walking mode is fully re-engaged.

    First gun purchase?

    Try a drop of silicon oil (just a drop) in the channel the follower rides, and manually push the sliding mechanism up and down a few times to spread the lube, before reloading with BBs and trying again; if the gun hasn't been used in some time the spring and follower may be sticking, but don't use too much lube as it will contaminate the hop etc with transference

    Pistol identification?

    It really depends on the age of the gun, as models change with time. It 'could' be a KWC, but the trigger looks wrong for all current models (the styling is similar to a TM or VB), I will assume the seller either trashed the packaging or never had any (if they were not the original owner, and are selling based on what they think they have), as packaging would give you the correct info. But, yeah, doesn't look like any one model 4.3 or 5.1 in particular as the combo of frame, slide, trim, grip, don't tally together... Hopefully someone else here actually has that unit exactly and can help out.

    TM hi capa slide not locking back.

    With an empty gassed up mag, does the slide lock back when racked manually? Does it cycle fully firing a loaded mag? With an empty fully gassed mag, dry fire it. Does the slide lock then?

    Ah the joys of 2nd hand kit, lesson here is ask plenty of Q's and get as many photos as possible to support answers

    That I had missed

    Pistol identification?

    Probably the KP05 if no additional silvered trim, but the silver safety makes me think it's the KP06, and someone might have removed the magwell trim in the past.

    First gun purchase?

    Parts are generally zero issues (never had one spot of bother from US/HK/EU), it's only importing complete units that you have to make sure you get them to add your UKARA number to the package (for customs) and making sure guns are the correct power for the region. You'll get hit with VAT on arrival depending on value, but that's the same with anything from outside the EU. I buy all kinds of stuff from all over the world, and VAT/import duty (plus any 'handling fees' - Royal Mail like to charge £8 for the honour) is my only after sale bugbear.

    Plastic slide? These were prone to self destruction on CO2, the metal ones were better. The plastic slides were for green gas, but even then they had a habit of failing. Getting a new slide in either material will be hard, you'll have to find a boneyard item if you're lucky. Gluing it will likely see it fail again very quickly, plastic welding might see it last longer, but again it's a known weak point of that gun. All the new CO2 ones have metal slides for that reason
